Gone are the days of an office whiteboard being a cumbersome, intrusive, fixed-size addition to your office. An evolution has taken place, where custom sizing, functionality and seamless inclusion are all now possible.
We love nothing more than seeing a workspace transformed in a way that takes advantage of a product’s potential. And such was the case when engineering and construction powerhouse, Bechtel, reached out to us to realise their vision of a workspace whiteboard Utopia.
Within open office spaces, meeting rooms, enclosed offices, boardrooms and storerooms – whiteboard that extended from knee height to well above head height, spanning 50 metres in length was installed. The largest single whiteboard was 7 metres in length, installed in an open office area.
To complete the aesthetic, each whiteboard will eventually be framed with aluminium strip holder.
We also installed window frosting, adding frosting strips to some of the exposed glass.
This project represents and embodies why we strive so hard to innovate within the signage industry. You will see no better example of the functionality of a workspace being maximised with custom whiteboard inclusions -at least, not until we next outdo ourselves.
And perhaps that will be with your project?
Our dedicated team at Sydney Signs Portal awaits your contact.
At Sydney Signs Portal, we pride ourselves on being at the cutting-edge of innovation in the signage industry. We have chosen to apply this ethos to the humble whiteboard to deliver yet another functional feature to your workspace, office or classroom.
Unlike traditional whiteboards, our bespoke whiteboards are a vinyl film that can be applied on walls at any length. Whether it’s 1 metre or 5 metres – or even longer – you decide the size of the whiteboard that suits your needs, and we will deliver the perfect custom whiteboard for you.
Perhaps you would like a world map printed on your whiteboard? Or your company’s branding or logo? You are only limited by your imagination.
But you begin to appreciate the potential of printing on whiteboard when you explore the option of transforming your whiteboard into a ready-made spreadsheet, or a weekly planner. We print the lines, to spare you the chore of re-doing them every time you erase that day’s text.
Contact us today and add this exceptional tool to your workspace. You will join a long list of clients who don’t know how they ever got by without this enhanced whiteboard functionality.
There are few organisations out there that command respect on the international stage in the way that UNICEF does. Since 1946, UNICEF has championed the rights of children, ensuring that the most vulnerable humans in conflict zones and disaster-stricken regions receive the food, water, medical assistance and education they need. This tireless work is in pursuit of a world where no child is denied basic needs, joy and safety.
So it was quite an honour for Sydney Signs Portal to be contacted by Unicef to complete a major installation at their Sydney CBD office.
After receiving their brief and inspecting the site, it became quickly apparent that the work they were wanting was well beyond their budget. Normally we would advise a client on ways to modify their ideas to accommodate their budget – but this IS UNICEF. As part of our ethical commitment, it felt right to offer this esteemed client a substantial discount, and deliver finished results that would exceed their expectations.
Sensing an opportunity to deliver more than the requested office world map wall graphics – and in keeping with our reputation as market-leading innovators – we were excited to debut our very own invention: digital print on whiteboard. The result being a 4.2m x 2.3m world map wall mural with office whiteboard functionality. Using erasable whiteboard markers, this office wall map can be used to plot points, make notes and strategically plan any international operations.
We also installed a more traditional vinyl office whiteboard in one of the UNICEF offices. As whiteboard vinyl on white wall tends to blend, making the borders indistinguishable, it is not uncommon for people to accidentally write on walls. We resolved this issue by adding a custom black boarder to the office whiteboard. This also achieved a more aesthetically pleasing finish, resembling an old-school whiteboard.
While it may be on point or a trend for businesses to assign offices the names of prominent world cities – this carries far more meaning when UNICEF decides to do it. As is custom for room name glass stickers, we used vinyl glass decals. The classic font in black maintains the formal appearance and is timeless.
For the two meeting rooms requiring privacy, we installed classic simple window frosting.
When you are working with an organisation that gives so much to those who have so little, you feel compelled to give as much as you can. Beyond our time and materials; our expertise; our attention to detail; our ability to innovate – it was our an honour to give generously to UNICEF. The spectacular results only further confirm our commitment to excellence.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) – or Doctors Without Borders – helps people all around the world, delivering emergency medical aid to those affected by conflict, epidemics and disasters. Sydney Signs Portal was given an amazing opportunity to create and install inspirational wall graphics and window decals for the MSF office in Sydney.
